Grain Free Sandwich Bread

Hello!  It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything.  I’ve been making a lot of the same things over and over and well, life gets in the way sometimes. But I wanted to share with you this bread recipe I’ve been making very often since last March.  It’s very easy and extremely tasty! This bread requires the use of a lot of eggs.  Thankfully, I’m at a point that I can tolerate eggs in baked goods, but not by themselves.  So, this bread may not be for you if you eggs are big no-no for you.  The best part … Continue reading

Pillsbury Gluten Free Multi-Purpose Gluten Free Flour Blend-A REVIEW

So, I’m pretty fussy about my gluten free flours.  And you should be too!  Don’t settle on your flours.  They can make or break your recipe! So, I’m here to inform you that you can save your money and NOT BUY the Pillsbury Gluten Free Multi-Purpose Gluten Free Flour Blend. This blend simply does not work.  I couldn’t get it to work with several different types of recipes.  Recipes that are tried and true turned into flops! The blend is made of rice flour (package doesn’t say what kind of rice flour), potato starch, pea fiber (I’ve not seen that … Continue reading

Grain Free Gluten Free Coconut Flour Biscuits

I’m intrigued by Paleo baking. For those who don’t know…that is baking without any grains…even gluten free ones. A lot of Paleo recipes I see call for the use of eggs. Especially if one is using coconut flour. That usually requires the use of a lot of eggs. While I normally avoid eggs, I am at a point where I can eat them in a baked good on occasion. One thing I’ve been making with coconut flour is biscuits to go with dinner. These are easy to put together, taste great and guilt free….no gluten, no grain. I blog with … Continue reading

Grain Free Sandwich Rounds

I have been making these grain free sandwich rounds for quite some time now and figured it is high time I share the recipe! These are so easy and awesome tasting. In fact, they are actually kind of neutral tasting which is what makes them so fabulous! They go with anything! (Yes, they are yellow looking, but one bite and you’ll forget all about the color!) I have made regular “turkey, lettuce and tomato” sandwiches with these sandwich rounds. They are a delish way to make PB&J. Don’t forget burgers…they make a good hamburger bun. And they even hold up … Continue reading

Pumpkin and Cranberry Granola

Making your own food is part of the gluten free, dairy free, (or allergy free) lifestyle. It just comes with territory and everyone is better off because of it. Homemade is always better! This is so true when it comes to granola; you can control the amount of oil and sugar used. So, in the spirit of autumn and all things pumpkin, I created a Pumpkin and Cranberry Granola recipe for Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Connection Team (FAACT). (I was not compensated). You can find the recipe by clicking here. And if you love granola as much as I do, … Continue reading

Gluten Free Grain Free Dinner Biscuits and Pizza Crust

In my last post I discussed almond meal verses blanched almond flour. You can read the post here. I know some of you are itching to see my almond meal recipes, but like I said, I found blanched almond flour on sale at Aldi of all places. So I bought it and have been trying out recipes I printed off the internet a long time ago and have been waiting in my “recipes to try binder.” I found this gluten free, grain free biscuit recipe. It is very good, but a bit on the salty tasting side. I only made … Continue reading

Almond Meal vs. Blanched Almond Flour

Many gluten free bakers and Paleo diet followers use blanched almond flour in their baked goods. I always find this intriguing, but also cost-prohibitive as blanched almond flour is expensive. Blanched almond flour is almonds without their skins ground up into a fine flour. Almond meal is ground up almonds with their skins on and is a course meal. There is a difference in how the two perform and usually cannot be used interchangeably. Almond meal is $5.99 for a 16 oz. bag at Trader Joe’s. Almond flour usually runs around $13-15 dollars for a 16 oz. bag. I recently … Continue reading

Gluten Free Graham Crackers

One of the main reasons I do not post every day, or every other day or even weekly is because I will only put up recipes that actually work and taste great. Honestly, I am surprised by the number of food bloggers that “put up recipes” that do not work. I know my way around a kitchen very well, and if I can’t make a recipe that I read on another’s blog work, then I really don’t think the average reader can. I have had this experience time and again when trying other’s gluten free cracker recipes. I have never … Continue reading

Cashew and Honey Bars with Chocolate Drizzle

Oooh La La. These are delish! Gluten free and allergy friendly baking is not easy. And sometime we just do not have time or energy to do endless measuring. We just want something easy and tasty! Like these Cashew and Honey (and agave) Bars with Chocolate Drizzle. I set out to make these because I wanted something easy like regular rice crispy treats, but without the marshmallows. Marshmallows are corn syrup, sugar, more corn derivatives and more sugar. Not good for people with corn sensitivities, or someone who wants to consume less sugar….way less sugar. I recommend making your own … Continue reading

Gluten Free Grain Free Thin Mint Cookies

Want the traditional Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookie flavor without the milk, gluten and soy? Check out these cookies! Lauren from Oatmeal With a Fork came up with these highly addictive, nearly identical, thin mint style cookies. What is even more awesome…they are grain free too! Yep! Don’t get freaked out by her choice of flour…I promise…you CAN NOT taste anything but super, delicious thin mint cookie flavor! Per her suggestion, I’ve been keeping them in the freezer and I find myself heading there several times a day. I really shouldn’t make these again. BUT I WILL! Her recipe is … Continue reading
